Loan Repayment... does this exist anymore??Register Today!
- by NurseHopefulInOH Feb 17, '10When I first decided to go to nursing school (3-4 yrs ago) everyone told me oh your employer will pay back your loans or pay for your school. I actually knew a couple of RN's that had their tuitions paid in full for signing a contract to work somewhere X amount of yrs. Does this even happen anymore? I am a LPN and do not expect to be hired at a hospital as an LPN but I am going straight to get my RN and was wondering if I will be stuck with massive loans to pay off once I finish. What about IN or KY? Anything that would offer any assistance at all? Thanks so much!

Both hospitals will also help you pay for school if you already work there and want to continue your education. OhioHealth does this as well.
